The People's Socialist Republic of Urgabah is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 36.904 billion Urgabahians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cornucopia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Urgabahian economy, worth an astonishing 13,927 trillion Uollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 377,390 Uollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urgabah's national animal is the Monitor Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Urgabah is ranked 8th in the world and 1st in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 32,013.89 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
